A 2.5d approach to skin wrinkles segmentation

Abstract : Wrinkles or creases are common structures on surfaces. Their detection is often challenging, and can be an important step for many different applications. For instance, skin wrinkle segmentation is a crucial step for quantifying changes in skin wrinkling and assessing the beneficial effects of dermatological and cosmetic anti-ageing treatments. A 2.5D approach is proposed in this paper to segment individual wrinkles on facial skin surface described by 3D point clouds. The method, based on mathematical morphology, only needs a few physical parameters as input, namely the maximum wrinkle width, the minimum wrinkle length, and the minimum wrinkle depth. It has been applied to data acquired from eye wrinkles using a fringe projection system. An accurate evaluation was made possible thanks to manual annotations provided by three different experts. Results demonstrate the accuracy of this novel method.
